Public gardens that have been closed for more than three decades have been reopened to the public after major restoration. Situated on the Rock, the Saint-Martin Grotto gardens command magnificent views of the Mediterranean and afford a special insight into local flowers and plants as well as animals that are native to Monaco.
Among the creatures that may be seen in and from the grotto gardens are the Peregrine falcon, the shag, the warty lizard and bats.
Guard rails have been installed and paths laid to allow visitors to explore a unique space. Non-native plants have been removed and local vegetation encouraged, said Jen-Luc Puyo, director of the restoration project.
The seismic measuring station in the grotto itself has also been brought up to modern standards. Information panels are about to be installed to welcome and inform curious visitors.
The National Assembly has welcomed the latest graduates to the Principality’s Police Force.
An incredible 12-month time lapse video showing the creation of Monaco’s mammoth land extension project has just been released.
Monaco has a new bailiff, or huissier as known locally, who was sworn in earlier this week.
General crime rates in the Principality dropped by a significant 16% between the years 2016 and 2019, and street crime by an impressive 52%.
